Flintshire in hunt for Niel
Flintshire leads a possible field of 13 for Sunday's Qatar Prix Niel, one of the highlights of Arc Trials day at Longchamp.
Andre Fabre's charge tops the ante-post market for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe after winning the Grand Prix de Paris back in July, supplementing an earlier win in a Chantilly Group Three.
He is one of five possibles for Fabre with Epsom Derby fifth Ocovango, Penglai Pavilion, Vancouverite and Triple Threat all still in the running.
Aidan O'Brien's Epsom winner Ruler Of The World is entered at this stage after managing to finish only fifth in the Irish Derby on his latest start.
Alain de Royer-Dupre is double-handed with Manndawi and Shirkapour while Pascal Bary also has a couple of contenders in Preempt and Spirit Jim. Max Dynamite, Kizuno and Bravodino also feature.
Camelot is a notable contender for O'Brien in the Qatar Prix Foy, the Arc trial for the older horses.
Winner of three Classics last year, he finished seventh in the Arc on his final start of 2012 and has not been seen this term since disappointing at Royal Ascot in June.
O'Brien also has Chamonix in the race while Ed Dunlop could saddle Joshua Tree.
Last year's Arc second, the Japanese runner Orfevre, is set to get his European campaign rolling in this Group Two event which he won last year while 2011 Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden could represent Mikel Delzangles.
Mandour, Very Nice Name, Now We Can, Stellar Wind, Going Somewhere, Haya Land and Pirika also feature on the 12-strong list.
The Qatar Prix Vermeille counts this year's French Oaks winner Treve among 16 contenders for Group One glory.
Silasol finished third that day and could try her luck again while O'Brien's Irish and Yorkshire Oaks second Venus De Milo could have another shot at the highest level.
Lady Cecil's pair of Wild Coco and Hot Snap are among the possibles, although both hold alternate engagements, as does Michael Bell's The Lark.
Ralph Beckett has left in Epsom heroine Talent, although she could tackle the Ladbrokes St Leger 24 hours earlier.
German Oaks winner Penelopa is another eyecatching entry along with Fabre's Prix Jean Romanet winner Romantica.
The Group Three Qatar Prix du Petit Couvert features plenty of British interest with Robert Cowell's Jwala, Victory Laurel and Reqaaba in the 20 confirmations along with Cecil's Tickled Pink and William Muir's Stepper Point.
Mirza, My Propeller, Riskit Fora Biskit and Caledonia Lady are in there along with possible Irish runner Maarek.
Aiken, Genzy and Biographer are the British possibles among 19 left in the Qatar Prix Gladiteur, which also features popular veteran stayer Kasbah Bliss.
